CFP: Mapping urban changes (Dubrovnik, 20-22 Sep 17)

Dubrovnik, Croatia, September 20 - 22, 2017
Deadline: Sep 5, 2016
The aim of this scientific workshop is to compare and discuss
methodologies of visualisation of the results achieved within the urban
history research. The intention is to gather researchers from different
disciplines, like art and architectural history, urban development
studies, geographical history, economic, social and political history
and archaeology, who would present their work. We are looking for
papers dealing with the physical changes of urban tissue, its buildings
or open spaces as well as those investigating the changes of the ways
they were used, perceived or governed. The research could be based on
archival data, literary sources, old maps and city views or examination
of the physical realm. The visualisations of these results realised
through analytic maps, especially those made with the use of  GIS
programs or improved with 3D models are most welcomed, as well as any
other methodology applied. The discussion will be focused on
possibilities, obstacles, limits and achievements of these
methodologies in the improvement of understanding and dissemination of
the research results.
The scientific workshop is organized within the project Dubrovnik:
Civitas et Acta Consiliorum. Visualizing Development of the Late
Medieval Urban Fabric founded by Croatian Science Foundation; see more

project web pages by the beginning of the workshop.
